We Can Kill Two Birds With One Stone On Bat Soup Virus And ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

No, the climate cultists will not give up in attempting to use a worldwide virus that has scared, infected, and killed people, locking them down, losing their businesses, etc, to force their Beliefs on everyone.

COVID And Climate Change: How To Kill Two Birds With One Stone

Investing in a green recovery from COVID-19 will deliver rapid short-term growth and long-term economic gains while also tackling climate change, according to a new study from Oxford University.

Researchers from Oxford’s Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment looked at whether economic stimulus packages in the wake of coronavirus would help or harm progress on measures to limit climate change. They found that, far from impeding growth, investing in green policies and infrastructure would lead to both a robust economic recovery and long-term positive outcomes for society.

In addressing the twin problems of the global downturn and climate change, the authors, who include the Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz, wrote: “The recovery packages can either kill these two birds with one stone—setting the global economy on a pathway towards net-zero emissions—or lock us into a fossil system from which it will be nearly impossible to escape.”

Interestingly, the massive investment in “green” stuff during the 2008 economic downturn didn’t really do much, as so many of the companies went out of business, and others couldn’t survive without continuous outside funding and government subsidies (much like the old liberal Air America radio). Your average citizen isn’t spending $10,000 or more on solar panels for their home. They aren’t spending $36,000+ on pure plugins, plugin hybrid sales are dismal, and even hybrid sales are tepid (it’ll be interesting to see what happens with the Honda CRV Hybrid, since its release coincided with the start of Bat Soup).

Why doesn’t Oxford invest their own money into “green” stuff? Have they gotten rid of all their fossil fueled vehicles used to run the school? Erected solar panels and wind turbines all across campus? Why does it always seem that Warmists always want government and others to spend their money, but they never want to spend their own money doing what they recommend?

In their paper, to be published in the Oxford Review of Economic Policy, the researchers surveyed 231 key figures from G20 countries, from central bank officials to economists, about the relative performance of 25 types of stimulus measures. The survey found that experts and officials worldwide believe recovery measures can and should be in line with climate goals, and furthermore that such measures produced better economic outcomes than “business-as-usual” models.

Of course they do. Because implementing more Hotcoldwetdry measures will give government more power. And make it harder for citizens to move around. Let me ask: if this stuff works so well, why has Europe’s economy only been so-so with all their climate policies?

The researchers further found that recovery packages “will reshape the economy for the longer-term, representing life and death decisions about future generations, including through their impact on the climate.” In their final analysis, the authors conclude that green stimulus measures “have better prospects for increasing national wealth, enhancing productive human, social, physical, intangible, and natural capital.”

    Hey Teach,

    Since the new tRumpist meme is that the CCP developed SARS-CoV-2 (tRump Plague) in the lab shouldn’t you rename it? How about Lab Soup Virus?

    And even if you accept the scientific consensus that bats were the reservoir for tRump Plague Virus (tPV) but that it spread to humans via another species, e.g., pangolin, maybe you could call it the Pangolin Soup Virus?

    BTW, yesterday’s poll says 63% of American think we’re “reopening” too soon.

    2,343 Americans died yesterday from the tRump Plague, surely to get worse because of Republicans.

      Hey 50 center. Sure sounds like your ROOTING FOR DEAD AMERICANS.

      Only enemies of Americans root for their deaths.

      Do you celebrate when a roadside bomb takes out a dozen soldiers?

      Did you root when Obama fired DRONES into the homes of Muslims that you pretend to defend?

      Were you all sad when Trump tried to pull out of Syria to protect Americans caught in the crossfire of Syria, Turkey, Kurds, Russia and Iranian backed Terrorists? You like those body counts dont you when a GOP’er is in the White house.

      BODY COUNT! Body Count! BODIIEEE COOOUUUNNNTTTT…..keep em coming….shouts the 50 center.

      Bat soup virus. Remember that is what your idols purported. This virus came from BATS that DO NOT EXIST in the WET MARKET in WUHAN. Those bats are over 500 miles away and in fact there were NO BATS SOLD AT THE MARKET AT ALL.

      YET your HEROIC PEOPLES COMMUNIST PARTY OF CHINA heaped on the world a massive dose of BODDIIEEE COUNTS for you to celebrate.

      I bet you are celebrating every day arent you 50 center.
